That van has been around town a bit. It seems cut from the same cloth as Chestnut Street's 'Sign Man'.

It's fun for me to pick out the locations that are not so obvious, such as the couple of shots on North 33rd Street just south of Lehigh, and the one from between the driveways behind the homes looking north to the Pep Boys HQ at 32nd and Allegheny. Overall, the thread was incredible.

This is the 'Time Machine', a performance prop that is part of the Philadelphia International Festival of The Arts that is currently underway in town



I'll have to get a better shot of the thing before it's done...

Oh man, that's really cool. I'd probably geek out and take a ton of photos of it.

Make sure to go at night if you do (and please share the results! ). It's much more interesting at night.
